WORCESTER BUSINESS JOURNAL – Allegro MicroSystems will leave its longtime Worcester home for a new facility in Marlborough this summer, the company announced Wednesday.
Allegro has been in Worcester since it was founded as Sprague Electric in 1965.
The maker of computer circuits will leave its facility at 115 Northeast Cutoff in Worcester for a new facility at 100 Crowley Drive in Marlborough.
The Marlborough facility is being customized to the company’s needs, and includes amenities like onsite food service, a fitness center and adjacent walking trails. The site’s location just off Route 85 near the interchange of I-290 and I-495 makes it attractive to employees and customers, Allegro said in a statement announcing the move.
Allegro said the Marlborough facility offers consolidated space but did not say how large of a space it will occupy.
Allegro’s Worcester facility is large, at 207,000 square feet, according to city records. The facility was built in 1975 and is owned by Allegro.
The four-story Marlborough facility was built in 2009 and includes about 100,000 square feet.
“We are very excited to provide our employees with a contemporary atmosphere that will foster a collaborative environment between our R&D, quality, finance and operations groups,” Allegro President and CEO Ravi Vig said in a statement.
“We expect that this new location will become an asset to attract our prospective workforce and set the foundation for our company’s future growth,” Vig said.
Allegro also announced Wednesday that a subsidiary, Sanken North America, will move to Allegro’s Manchester, N.H., facility. Allegro first announced last fall that it is building 15,000-square-foot expansion of its Manchester facility. That project is expected to be complete by this summer.
Allegro has facilities in Michigan, the Philippines, the United Kingdom, Scotland, France, Germany, Argentina, China, Thailand, South Korea and Japan.
